The Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor's Office has prepared an indictment against notorious mafia leader Alaattin Çakıcı over his open threats against main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu.
The indictment demands a sentence of between one and two years on charges of “insult,” whereas between six months and two years on charges of “threat.”
Kılıçdaroğlu's lawyer Celal Çelık shared a copy of the indictment on Twitter and wrote: “Finally! The indictment against Alattin Çakıcı for insulting and threatening our chairman has been prepared! As we have said before, we will definitely make sure that he gets a penalty!”

Kılıçdaroğlu was threatened by Çakıcı in November after the former criticized the government for allowing the release of “mafia leaders and drug traffickers" as part of an amnesty law in April.
In a statement on Nov. 17, 2020, Çakıcı told Kılıçdaroğlu to “watch his step.” “If you put Bahçeli in the same pot as traitors, you would be making the mistake of your life,” Çakıcı wrote in an open letter he shared on Twitter.
When the CHP leader on Nov. 18, 2020 filed a complaint against Çakıcı, the mafia leader responded to the main opposition head with yet another threat.
"Get Bahçeli's name out of your mouth, you couldn't even add up to his balls," Çakıcı said in a new open letter. "Rather than speaking like a woman, get me killed if you have the guts," Çakıcı wrote.
